Martin Engwell, Thetford Golf Club captain, held his Charity Golf Day in aid of the East Anglian

Air Ambulance.

A total 164 players, in teams of four, enjoyed a fantastic round of competition golf in perfect golfing weather on a course in fine condition.

Teams competed for the three main prizes of specially engraved glassware; and in addition, there were separate prizes for each of the 18 holes as well as a tricky putting competition.

Several holes were sponsored by local companies, some of whom entered teams in the main golfing competition. In addition to the golf there were individual cash donations, a prize raffle and a silent auction for free rounds of golf.

Winners of the team prize were Three Gert Pasties and a Pixie consisting of Andy Dunn, Barry Brackenborough, Trevor Goodwin and Jim Sandford (pictured).

The combination of activities raised in excess of £5,000 and Engwell thanks all participants, sponsors, corporate and individual sponsors, club staff and members for their tremendous support on this special day.
